My friend Sands made some new stuff that I decided to slip into tonight. It’s always weird when your male friends make lingerie but not nearly as weird as when your friends are skinners and you think things like “wow I really like my new vagina well done friend!”
I am trying out one of the new heads from Lelutka and I’m excited to try the others. Lelutka remains my favorite head and I’m anxious to familiarize myself with the bells and whistles these new releases have. I’m playing with the moods and I think I’m going to be irked natural spicy.
Spicy makes me laugh. I’m also trying out new makeup from Glam Affair. Bianca is so pretty, and I love this bold eye make up. Perfect for a Monday kinda day, which it is.
I’ve got a lot playing with new things to do. I’m kind of excited!
This update gives us even more ways to make our heads “us”, which is perfect.

Only one more day of Hair Fair, one more day to find gorgeous hair and raise money for Wigs for Kids. This blog will show a few of the EnVOGUE hairs for the designer I profiled earlier today. I will also show of the fun outfit from Hucci that makes me thing I should try salsa dancing. Other highlights are some fun sandals from Pure Poison and crazy bold earrings from Mon Cheri – all at Collabor88. I will let the photos speak for themselves.
One of my favorite songs ever is “There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York” from Porgy and Bess as sung by Phoebe Snow. This promenade on Staten Island made me think of the song. To be honest, lots of things make me think of this song. It’s on my iPod and I play it frequently. Her voice was amazing and she was a heroic woman.
There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong, baby
You and me can live that high life in New York
Come with me
There we can’t go wrong, baby Continue reading →
I just read two books back to back that made me realize there is this whole genre of books with a similar form. I have read many of them over the years, but never realized what they were. I decided to call this genre Brilliant Friends books after Elena Ferrante’s magical Neapolitan Quartet and its first book My Brilliant Friend. The stories are all told by an adult woman looking back on an intense high school friendship that was formative, changing their lives in some way or another. The narrator is the more subdued friend, the quiet one, the follower who is remembering the brilliant, defiant, bold, brave and ultimately tragic friend. Tragedy can take many forms, not just death, but always, the narrator ends in a better place than the brilliant friend. Thinking about it, both the books I just read (Marlena and Please Proceed to the Exit) fit that model but not just them. There’s The Girls by Emma Cline, The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel, even All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda, a mystery has the brilliant friend disappear, runaway or murder victim.
I love this new Plume dress from Basaltice with its little feathers all over it. It comes in so many versions and I want to wear them all. One of the things I love about Sissy Pessoa is when she does prints, she does a lot of prints that are not just several shades of one print. The dress also has a long version with a long sheer skirt over the shorter opaque skirt.
